Psalm 27

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith

A Psalm of David.

1 The Lord is my alight and my salvation;

Whom shall I fear?

The bLord is the strength of my life;

Of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When the wicked came against me

To ceat 1up my flesh,

My enemies and foes,

They stumbled and fell.

3 dThough an army may encamp against me,

My heart shall not fear;

Though war may rise against me,

In this I will be confident.

4 eOne thing I have desired of the Lord,

That will I seek:

That I may fdwell in the house of the Lord

All the days of my life,

To behold the 2beauty of the Lord,

And to inquire in His temple.

5 For gin the time of trouble

He shall hide me in His pavilion;

In the secret place of His tabernacle

He shall hide me;

He shall hset me high upon a rock.

6 And now imy head shall be 3lifted up above my enemies all around me;

Therefore I will offer sacrifices of 4joy in His tabernacle;

I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!

Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

8 When You said, “Seek My face,”

My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”

9 jDo not hide Your face from me;

Do not turn Your servant away in anger;

You have been my help;

Do not leave me nor forsake me,

O God of my salvation.

10 kWhen my father and my mother forsake me,

Then the Lord will take care of me.

11 lTeach me Your way, O Lord,

And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.

12 Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;

For mfalse witnesses have risen against me,

And such as breathe out violence.

13 I would have lost heart, unless I had believed

That I would see the goodness of the Lord

nIn the land of the living.

14 oWait 5on the Lord;

Be of good courage,

And He shall strengthen your heart;

Wait, I say, on the Lord!
